Community projects



The museums of Forssa, Södertälje (Sweden) and Struer (Denmark) are carrying out a joint museum project Wear & Share relating to textile heritage. During the project, the twin city museums will inspire, encourage and guide their collections and textile heritage-related activities in general. The aim is to develop the museums as places of participation, to promote the creative use of collections, to strengthen interactions between the generations and to share knowledge between the museum professionals. During the project, the collections of textiles will be digitised, memories will be collected and new will be created from old within the framework of courses and workshops. Each museum carries out activities suitable for its own location and collections.

The project received a Capacity Development grant from the Nordic Culture Point.
